East launches its Horizon Round Bottom Trailer

East Manufacturing, manufacturer of aluminum flatbed, drop deck, dump and refuse trailers as well as steel dump trailers and aluminum truck bodies, is has launched its new Round Bottom Trailer, Horizon, designed with the needs of aggregate, sand and gravel as well as agriculture loads in mind.

The Horizon maximizes payload by incorporating lighter weight components while still delivering strength and durability, the manufacturer said during a press conference at TMC 2022. The new round-bottom design gives the trailer a lower center of gravity, providing greater dump stability and better cornering for more operational peace of mind. The round-bottom shape allows it to empty cleaner and faster than traditional square-bottom trailers. Horizon has a greater payload capacity when compared to a traditional half-round trailer.

Its low profile provides a lower center of gravity and a more stable dumping platform. Like all East frameless dump trailers, the Horizon round bottom uses only premium aluminum alloys for flooring and sidewall material for long life and durability. Premium-grade aluminum floors are built with up to 33% more yield strength than industry standards.

Its base weight is 9,860 pounds without options, a liner or tarp system, which is lighter weight when compared to the East Hybrid dump trailer. It’s 102 inches wide and is available in lengths up to 40-feet long. For weight-conscience operations, its sidewall heights include 52-, 56- or 60-inch for 43.4-, 46.8- and 51-cubic-yard capacity, respectively.

Lightweight/long-life upper coupler has replaceable stainless steel saddle receiver assembly bolted into a light-weight aluminum sub-structure for reduced tare weight and maximum durability. While the aerodynamically-designed fenders protect the trailer from road debris and provide a nicely finished look.

End-users can have all the advantages of lightweight, strength, durability and good looks – all in the new Horizon Round Bottom Trailer.
